Chiropractic Courses Available for TIC MEMBERS
Dr. Simon Senzon teaches new lectures every year to various chiropractor groups, chiropractic colleges, and students. Each talk is unique. Most of them are recorded. TIC Members get access to these lectures as soon as they are produced. Many of these chiropractic courses will be submitted for approval for CE credit. When approvals are complete these chiropractic courses will then be listed for CE credit at Sherman’s portal and available to TIC Members for CE discounts. In the meantime, these are available to TIC Members.
During this 45-minute all-school assembly at Life University in August 2017, Dr. Simon Senzon dissects many of the problems with the chiropractic literature. For more than forty years, chiropractic books and articles have repeated some incorrect facts and theories. Many of these mistakes relate to the history of ideas in chiropractic. Dr. Senzon treats these as “Fake News” because even though corrections have been in the literature for years, in some instances, the errors continue to get published. The fake news goes all the way back to the first years of the profession when D.D. Palmer’s students fabricated details about chiropractic’s origins. Dr. Senzon brings the latest facts about chiropractic history to the students in order to set the record straight. By understanding the history of ideas in chiropractic, students and practitioners could help move the profession forward. *TIC MEMBER’S ACCESS
Vibration Theory and Periodicity
This hour and a half lecture was delivered in two parts at the Massachusetts Alliance for Chiropractic Philosophy in 2017. The first part explained the early vibration theories of D.D. Palmer, B.J. Palmer, and John Howard. The second part described a history of B.J. Palmer’s later theory of periodicity and frequency of subluxation.
Vibration Theory in Chiropractic
This talk focuses on the development of vibration theory in chiropractic. D.D. Palmer claimed to have developed vibration theory in chiropractic. The first known use of the term “vibration” in chiropractic was during B.J. Palmer‘s lectures. Nevertheless, both Palmers had distinctly different theories. In fact, they used different references to support their vibration models. D.D.’s theory was based on “molecular vibration.” B.J.’s theory was based on electrical and neurological models in the literature. John Howard also developed his own vibration theories. *TIC MEMBER’S ACCESS
Subluxation Frequency and Periodicity
This talk explores two obscure writings on Subluxation Theory. In 1933 and 1934, B.J. Palmer introduced the idea that vertebral subluxations have frequency and periodicity. This is one his most obscure and fascinating subluxation theories. He based this model on clinical observations of dozens and perhaps hundreds of patients in the clinic using thermographic instrumentation and x-ray analysis. B.J. Palmer delivered three talks on the subject. Each were published eventually. He concluded that the vertebral subluxation existed in an abnormal “field” or range. Subluxations were periodic and related to chronically weakened muscles. This theory was a break from prior models of subluxation. *TIC MEMBER’S ACCESS
The GEN/WAVE Model
This 80-minute lecture was presented to the Chiropractic Philosophy Forum in 2014. It is the first lecture on the Gen/Wave model, which model a useful way to understand the history of ideas in chiropractic. The four generations are measured by 33 year periods starting in 1913, when D.D. Palmer died. At that point, a full generation of chiropractors were poised to lead the profession. The 9 waves of chiropractic ideas are defined by the literature, citation patterns, and significant developments in the history of ideas in chiropractic. *TIC MEMBER’S ACCESS
